The Performance

Based on a 1925 short story and much adapted for screens big and small, Christie’s play is easily her most ingenious. The case against Vole seems overwhelming: he astutely befriended the rich old lady who was the victim, inherited all her money and on the night of the crime was seen with blood on his clothes.

The affable Leonard Vole is being tried for the murder of a wealthy woman, and legendary lawyer Sir Wilfrid Robarts has chosen to represent him. Unfortunately, Leonard’s alibi depends on the testimony of his callous wife, Christine – who, after the discovery of a legal loophole, makes the shocking decision to appear in court against him. To Sir Wilfrid’s surprise, this is only the first in a series of puzzling revelations and reversals.
